UNITED NATIONS - Amid escalating tensions between India and Pakistan in wake of the terrorist attacks in Indian city of Mumbai, Pakistan has urged the international community to play its role in averting a conflict in South Asia. "India should not widen the area of conflict," Pakistan's U.S. Ambassador said in a letter to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann and the 192 U.N. members. "Pakistan and India have to help each other to contain the elements of anarchy and to stop them in their track", Ambassador Haroon said in the letter released on Sunday, in which he said the Mumbai attacks were aimed at accomplaishing al-Qaeda's objectives. "Due to the urgency of the situation the Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice should rush immediately to South Asia to bring about rapprochement and rapport between the aggrieved countries to avoid conflagration, ambassador Haroon added. He reiterated Pakistan's condemnation of the terrorist attacks and said his government was ready to cooperate in the investigating the crime. "We mourn the death of 200 people in India and we ask them to mourn with us as we lose more than that number every week and in the shared grief, let us work together".
